  • Patent number: 10290231
    Abstract: Various systems and methods are provided for injection training by collecting, processing, analyzing and displaying measured information associated with the delivery of an injection. Sensor-based measurements of a syringe's position and orientation in three-dimensional space are obtained and processed to provide metrics of a trainee's injection performance. The measurements can be combined with a digital model of a training apparatus to deliver a computer-generated, graphical depiction of the training injection, enabling visualization of the injection from perspectives unavailable in the physical world. The training injection execution, as reflected in the measured sensor-based data, can be reviewed and analyzed at times after, and in locations different than, the time and location of the training injection. Additionally, injection training data associated with multiple training injections can be aggregated and analyzed for, among other things, trends in performance.

  • Publication number: 20190130792
    Abstract: An injection system or platform can simulate outcome of injection procedures, which can be specific to the patients' ethnicities, to aid the injector and patients in selecting a treatment plan. An injection system or platform can also include a pair of augmented reality glasses that allow a user of the system to visualize underlying anatomy, a needle tip underneath a patient's skin, and/or injection sites on the patient. An injection service provider and patient matching system can facilitate better matching between the injection service providers and the patients, which can improve the injection outcome for the patients.

  • Patent number: 10269266
    Abstract: An injection system can have a Syringe Dose and Position Apparatus (SDPA) mounted to a syringe. The SDPA can have one or more circuit boards. The SDPA can include one or more sensors for determining information about an injection procedure, such as the dose measurement, injection location, and the like. The SDPA can also include a power management board, which can be a separate board than a board mounted with the sensors. The syringe can also include a light source in the needle. Light emitted from the light source can be detected by light detectors inside a training apparatus configured to receive the injection. The syringe can have a power source for powering the sensors and the light source. The SDPA and the power source can be mounted to the syringe flange.

  • Patent number: 10235904
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses for providing substantially omnidirectional light emission from a tip of a needle for use with injection training systems are provided. The substantially omnidirectional light emission improves the angular range of detection of the emitted light. The approach uses principles of fluorescence and/or light diffusion to emit light in a substantially omnidirectional pattern from the needle tip in order to improve the detectability of the emitted light by a light detector.
